Hard to believe anybody is sniping at Alex Smith for struggling on a horrible
team with no coaching continuity for so many years. DEW Cougar, he is no longer
a Ute; give it up. Why are you letting Ute fans control your opinions? It's
silly to maintain animosity toward someone who played for the team you didn't
support so long ago. At this point what any fan knows that Alex played his
college ball in the state where you live.
3:48 doo kittenAs good as Steve Young was, it took him 10 years in
the NFL and 8 years with the 49'ers before he got to the Super Bowl as the
49'ers starter.He had coaching, team-mates, and ownership that were gone
when Alex was drafted.Try Google...It's in there.
Dew CougarNo luck, pure skill. It takes more than one player to
make the playoffs, you must not follow the NFL that much there are always 22 men
on the field playing at one time. If there is 23 someone is going to get a
Congrats to Alex!! I'm glad that you proved this LOOOOONG time 49er fan
wrong.GO 9ers!!@DEW CougarsSteve Young was a
bust on a horrible Tampa Bay team, he was a hall of fame QB on dynasty team.
Alex struggled because we were a bad team, and the coaching was horrible.Those were not two "lucky plays". More like brilliant play
calling and execution. A good example of "lucky plays" is Riley's
last drive against Utah State.
What a great game! And Alex brought it big time!!! Thanks, Alex, for bringing
some glory back to the niners!!!!
Too many Alex haters in the past and especially from many on this site for
years. Alex has overcome a lot.
all i can say is what a game! there were about 4 times that someone scored and i
thought the game was over. but the suprises kept coming. the offenses stayed
cool under pressure. good for the niners, they deserved to win this one. the
tears on vernon davis's face showed how much it meant to them
Joe Montana is a comback playerSteve Young has HeartsAlex Smith, it
took him 7 years to finally playing in the playoff. What took you so long? You
were so lucky on those last three minutes game for two TD's (stats record). Hope
NY Giants win it so you don't have to play at Green Bay in the sub zero weather.
Brees is down. Rodgers ad Brady to go. Here's to hoping!
Congrats Alex, you deserve this.
indyAlex told reporters in SF, that the win only meant they could
play another day.Getting "beat up" by fans as well as the
organization will humble anyone.Alex and Harbaugh knows haters are
always ready to pounce.I think Harbaugh has helped Alex learn how to
cope with that fact.It is fun to see Alex play with that confidence
we saw years ago.
With enough time I can truly say I am now an Alex Smith fan all the way. My
liking for SF 49ers goes back to the Steve Young Era
It's so nice to see Alex finally prove his critics wrong. He played a great
game - I was amazed that he took his team on two last minute drives. That had
to be one of the greatest playoff games I've ever seen.I hope they
can keep playing like this - it will take another near perfect game to get by
the Packers - assuming they get past the Giants.It would have been
nice if Alex stuck around for his senior year with the Utes, but of course he
left after his junior year to become the 1st pick - a move that is finally
paying off with a good coaching staff.
Great game niners! Hopefully the Giants win tomorrow so the NFC title game is
played @ candlestick!
Agree! Alex looked like he did as a senior in college...credit stability by
Harbaugh and a great game plan...Can't wait to see how Max Hall does
in his NFL play off game!! Certainly he is playing for some play off
Alex was Double Clutch today.
